LINDA MORAN

LINDA MORAN (Producer), winner of the Motorola Producers Award in the 2002 Independent Spirit Awards, and a producer of the acclaimed feature film, “L.I.E.”, has more than 15 years of experience in the film and music industries.  After graduating Summa Cum Laude from Columbia University with a degree in Music and English, she began a career as a singer, doing concert and recording work for such artists as Mick Jagger and Debbie Gibson.  Moran subsequently worked for Grammy Award-winning music producer Nile Rodgers, with whom she was involved in the recording of a David Bowie album and movie soundtracks for “Beverly Hills Cop III” and “Blue Chips.”

    Moran’s introduction to independent filmmaking came when she was cast in Tim McCann’s film “Desolation Angels,” which later won the Merchant/Ivory Kodak Award at the Telluride Film Festival and the International Critics’ Prize at the Toronto Film Festival.  She subsequently co-produced “Sue,” a feature film written and directed by Amos Kollek (starring Anna Thomson) that was premiered at the 1997 Berlin Film Festival, before being released domestically in 1998.  With its international release, “Sue” enjoyed both critical and popular acclaim.  Her second collaboration with Amos Kollek and Anna Thomson, “Fiona,” was featured at the 1998 Toronto Film Festival before going to the 1999 Berlin Film Festival.

    Linda Moran co-produced “Harlem Aria,” which starred Damon Wayans and was produced by Deepak Nayar (whose credits include “Lost Highway” and “The End of Violence”) and produced – along with director Robert J. Siegel – the feature film “Swimming,” which made its debut at Slamdance 2000 before being shown at the Rotterdam Film Festival, among many others. Most recently, she produced the acclaimed independent feature, “L.I.E.,” which premiered in the Dramatic Competition program of this year’s Sundance Film Festival, and was subsequently shown at New York’s New Directors/New Films, the Edinburgh Film Festival and the Stockholm International Film Festival, among others, prior to a highly successful commercial release.

    Moran was the production manager of the New York companies of two feature films: Jim Sheridan’s widely praised “The Boxer” and Wim Wenders’ documentary, “The Buena Vista Social Club.”
